ABOUT THIS EVENT

The Odyssey Tech Deep Dive (in collaboration with the Jheronimus Academy for Data Science) on FEB 4th 2019, in Den Bosch, was specifically organized for developers and technically savvy entrepreneurs, lawyers, scientists, board members and policymakers who want to discover the future by actually building it. #BUILD.

On stage, we gathered an exceptionally high level of technical knowledge and experience from the forefront of the actual core developments in Bitcoin, Ethereum and Ocean Protocol. Rarely seen on one stage!

The Tech Deep Dive was one of many open deep dives that week in preparation of the biggest blockchain hackathon on the planet (April 11-15, 100 teams, €200k in cash rewards) for the development of open digital public infrastructure and the digital commons, of which blockchains, cryptocurrencies, tokens, & AI are crucial elements. The Tech Deep Dive gave an opportunity to all the attendants to boost their knowledge, to spark their inspiration and enabled them to talk to all the Track Partners and learn about their hackathon challenges.

  • No sponsored talks, pure genuine knowledge sharing.
  • No intro talks, but straight to the cutting edge.
